Verified Buyer Reviewed by Disappointed from DC on Thursday, April 28, 2016I was not happy to see that when I opened the shoe box it was not the colors pictured on the website. The colors of the show pictured are celedon, papaya, and pop green. The colors of the shoes I received are papaya, black, and igloo blue. Please correct this error.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by PamKY from Kentucky on Monday, August 10, 2015My main source of exercise is walking my dog(s). Over the last ten years, I've probably bought at least one model from all the "name brand" athletic shoes out there. Some would be pretty good, some would be tolerable, and a few were no-go's from the very first step.
Tired of shelling out $$$$ for "pretty good" shoes, I turned to Sierra Trading Post and their wonderful reviewers and ended up trying a total unknown - the Salomon XR Mission Trail Running shoe. I was skeptical of the "quick lace" thing, but the price was terrific and the reviews were good.
Out of the box, this is an attractive shoe with impressive tread. On the foot, it has a WIDE toe box, for which my moderate bunions are most grateful. Arch support is average, if you want more, go with some orthotics. The quick-lace system has a short learning curve and I now love it.
On the road, the broad forefoot gives me the best stability of ANY shoe I have ever used. The ankle rides a bit high on my small foot and at first I was a bit bothered by the cuff hitting my ankle bones, but that seems to be lessening as I break the shoes in. These shoes do not have the pillowy-soft insole that you find in other shoes, which is not a problem for me. Again, if this were an issue, I would just put in a pair of Dr. Scholl's and go on my merry way.
The final grade, based on complete lack of pain in my feet after a pretty long walk... A+
Great shoe. My feet love it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Juli from Los Angeles on Monday, July 27, 2015I have only worn these shoes a couple of times since they arrived, they are my weekend walkers. I use them mainly for walking on pavement. I do some hiking but haven't yet worn these on the trail. So far, they are a good support for my feet and ankles (due to the stronger support around the heel). I'm having some trouble figuring out the quick tie or release and the little picture that came with the shoe was not much help. It is some consolation that if I get too frustrated with it, I can just buy some laces.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lee Glenna from Arizona on Wednesday, July 15, 2015My very first pair of Salomon trail shoes. Very light and fit is great. Thank you STP.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by UP Trail Runner from michigan on Wednesday, July 8, 2015I have never tried Solomon trail running shoes before and I can say with confidence that I will buy them every time. I have a very neutral foot so these fit wonderfully. They literally envelope your feet to offer support on the rocky and root terrain.
